Shelby said it’s important to pay a visit to each of the 67 counties in the state, for which he’s served in the Senate since 1987.

“Throughout my time in the United States Senate, I have made it a top priority to visit all 67 counties in Alabama every year,” said Shelby.  “The focus of my statewide travel will be to hear from my constituents about the impact of the Obama Administration’s policies on middle class families, job creation, and economic growth.  I believe these visits are an excellent opportunity for us to discuss the important issues currently facing our state and nation.”

Additionally, Shelby will visit Lowndes County earlier Monday afternoon, marking the ninth stop on the tour.
